In this site-specific installation at Connecting Space in North Point, legendary Hong Kong artist Frog King Kwok (aka Frog King) reinterprets his seminal historical works from the mid-to-late 1970s. Long well known as his artistic persona ‘Frog King’, Kwok is increasingly recognised for his pioneering role in introducing conceptual, process-based, and performance art strategies in Hong Kong and China. His temporary installations made from all manner of found objects and everyday, non-artistic materials have been presented in exhibition venues and public spaces around the world.
Kwok’s installation will be complemented by a digital slideshow of haunting images of performances by Japanese-American artist, choreographer, and dancer Eiko Otake. The images are taken from the A Body in Fukushima series shot by photographer/collaborator William Johnston in the radiation-damaged areas near Fukushima as part of Otake’s A Body in Places project.
Connecting Space will serve as a ‘hub’ during the run of Mobile M+: Live Art hosting educational and public programmes including artist talks and panels.
